Session Title: Time for a Change: Transitioning to a Career in Tech

Kick off your Grand Circus visit ​with an all encompassing tour beginning in our award-winning lobby. We'll then walk you through our co-working space that boasts amazing views of Grand Circus Park. ​Finish your visit with us as CEO Damien Rocchi leads an open panel with alumni and current students as they discuss the career-changing decision to take an intensive coding bootcamp, how it has led them to where they are now and why we need to attract more tech workers to the city of Detroit.

Special Instructions from Host Company to Attendees:  We are located at 1570 Woodward Ave. - you will enter through the set of gold doors on Woodward (not the entrance off of Witherell) and take the elevator up to the 4th floor. We'll meet you there! See below for parking information. There are plenty of lots and structures within a few blocks of Grand Circus. Please click on the link to see our Parking Guide that maps out some of these options. In addition to those highlighted, there is also metered street parking available on Broadway and Washington and we are right across the street from the Grand Circus Park People Mover Station!
